How to customize the task name?

Jump to solution

Hi,

This is my first time to customize an Activiti workflow. I built the workflow by reusing the tasks defined in workflowModel.xml, but want to change the task name displayed in share task page. How can I define them?

Thanks.

Hi Charles,

In Share you can control the name with a property named title of the content type that define your task in the workflow content model. This is a problem for you since you're are reusing the out-of-the-box tasks which have its properties predefined.

When is nevesary to do any customization , even a litle one, i think the best way to do it is to extend alfresco with a custom workflow model in which you would have full control.

You could define the correspondent localization files and set the custom labels. This labels can be defined with this format:

<model_prefix>_<model_name>.type.<model_prefix>_<type_name>.title=

The name displayed in Activiti Explorer comes from the 'name' attribute in the task definition.

e.g <userTask id="shipOrder" name="Ship Order">

You can also use the <documentation> element to add more detail.

Hello Charles,

Are you talking about APS or the Activiti engine embedded in ACS?

Hi Roberto,

I am using Alfresco Community, I think the Activiti engine is embedded in it.

I am using the Activiti embedded in Alfresco Community. The name defined in BPMN does not displayed in the task page. I did some study and found the message properties file in the SDK platform module controls the display. But I did find the documentation describes the format and usage.
